Our Vision

Our motivation is to bring international hackathon experience to our country, Nepal. Moreover:

Encourage creativity and teamwork spirit

Asian Hack provides a platform for participants to unleash their creativity and collaboration skills, which are two vital skills for learning and career growth.

Create next-generation tech leaders

Every industry, from finance to transportation, requires people who know how to work with technology. By equipping participants with technical skills along with workshops on the latest open source technologies, software, APIs, and hardware, more opportunities will open up for them in the future.

Expand the “Hackathon” culture in Nepal

Hackathon culture encourages people to think out of the box. Participants challenge themselves to create something new and take ownership of what they create.

Providing Experience of working in Real Time

Working on some problems and finding technical solutions in 48 hours is itself a challenging task. Participants would be hence able to handle the pressure and work for a solution in the tensed environment.
